Meet the Vivo Air | America's thinnest Smartphone.


Meet the thinnest smartphone in America, the VivoAir. It's made by BLU Products, a company I've never heard of until VivoAir was released.
The Miami based company continues to prove that it is easier and simpler to build a beautiful smartphone and sell it for next to nothing.
Aside it being the thinnest phone in the U.S., the VivoAir boasts of 5.1mm thickness, 16 GB internal storage, 8 Mega pixel primary camera and 5 Mega pixel front  camera. Pretty good for beautiful photos.
What I love most about the VivoAir is it's thinness. It's just 5.1 mm thick. That's stupid thin. As skinny as I am.  NO! I am thicker than it is. It also weighs less than 100 ounces.That's stupid light too. It runs on Android 4.4.2 (KitKat). It's thinner, lighter and more affordable (not for the average Ghanaian).

I don't expect the Vivo Air in the Ghanaian mobile phone market any sooner. If you need one you have to buy it on online retail stores like Amazon. It goes for only $200 that's about GHC 660. It's hard to argue with what BLU is offering.
